This is not a place for sunbathing as the wind whips the sand around, but it makes a nice walk and paddle.

A great beach. Apply sun screen, extremely misleading conditions- the cool wind hides the blistering strength of the sun. Good beach football, often is join-in-able. If sitting amongst other Maroccans, don't strip off entirely, out of respect.

Very popular sand beach - great for swimming, parasailing, kitesailing and surfing, playing football....the footpathed promenade follows the beach and the main road all the way down to where the road turns to the next beach of Diabat. At this point there are small cafes, surf board hire and repair, horses and camels for hire and a large carpark.

A nice even beach, with a good stretch of fine sand, clean. Stroll the promenade, get a tan and have a dip in the sea. Not too crowded.

Be aware that the temperature difference between Marrakech and Essaouira beach can be almost half. (Essaouira @16:00 23ºC and Marrakech @18:00 42ºC)
Lovely beach nice sidewalk and view.
It almost feel you're somewhere in Europe, beside the fact that you will see a lot of locals fully dressed at the beach :)
